Why Joe call to book: five eight six two zero two zero one two seven chose Northern Michigan

We were so very fortunate this year. Our neighbor offered to sell us her lake home as she needed to move on because of her age. After we closed on the property we did several improvements to make it as enjoyable for our visitors. We also re- constructed the beach front area and brought in 60 yards of sand. Lots for the kids to play in!

What makes this house unique

This home has a beautiful veiw of the lake, a large yard and the homes on our street have large yards for playing. You are not crammed together like many lakefronts. Our end of the lake is very queit with little boat traffic

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed the weekend at this nicely refinished home. What a kitchen! The theme rooms were adorable, the nautical and swan rooms were very special.The beach was beautiful and wow what a view. The beds and furniture were very confortable and the baths and shower heads were awesome. I feel spoiled now. Everything you need is right at your finger tips. We packed way too much. We will definitey be back this summer with some friends and we are going to rent the pontoon too. Very nice boat.

Fantastic week!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week in Gladwin. House was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with cookware and dishes. Plenty of space in the house and bunk house for our family to enjoy. We rented the pontoon boat and swam and fished right off the dock. Visited the Stone house and of course had Ice cream at both places in town. Joe was very courteous and answered any questions I had in a timely manner. Highly recommend!

Great family week on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week on the lake. Joe was awesome at answering the array of questions we had before booking. The house was very clean and well stocked with towels and kitchenware. Pretty much a home away from home! We rented the pontoon boat which was very well maintained and had fun out on the lake. Everyone had enough room in the house to move around and the bunk house was perfect for my brother, his wife and their two teenage daughters. Played a round of golf at the nearby course and visted the Stone house and of course both ice cream shops in town. Overall a fun stay with the family! Highly recommended!

Wonderful home in Gladwin

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying at this wonderful home in Gladwin. The accommodations were excellent. Our family of 7 was very comfortable. The guest house was great for the young adults. The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen was fabulous. Lots of upgrades in the house. Had a great time on the pontoon boat too. I would HIGHLY recommend this home for a visit for all ages. Also, the owner, Joe was great to work with. Thanks for the memories!!!

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

nice clean house, enjoyed the access to the boat, easy to drive for first timers. Had an area for the kids to play on a small swing set. The kids enjoyed building sand castles. The water was too cold to swim but we Enjoyed making a bon fire. Overall a nice cottage, we would rent again. The third bedroom was detached from the house but still cozy, didn't have the young kids stay out there incase they needed to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. The host was super helpful and accommodating.

Great rental! Especially for the price. We were in town for a wedding at crooked river and the location was perfect. 12 minute ride to the venue and 5 minutes into town. Very clean and accomodating.
